We would appreciate your cabin being left in a clean and tidy condition. It is equipped with cooking facilities and it is your responsibility to wash all dishes and cooking equipment prior to departure. Your rubbish is also to be put out in the large bin outside your cabin.
If you require housekeepers to clean your dishes this is available at an extra cleaning charge ($30). If the dishes are left dirty on your departure we will presume you are requesting this service and charge accordingly.
All our cabins are fully self-contained which means we don’t service your cabin daily. For stays longer than a week we will organise for a change of linen midway through your stay. If you require fresh linen please see reception, extra linen charges may apply.
Your cabin is supplied with milk, tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, and biscuits to get you started with your stay. Your bathroom has also been stocked with complementary Soap, Shampoo and Conditioner.
All cabins are air-conditioned with either box or split systems that allows for individual remote control. The remote control is located on the wall adjacent to the doorway or on the bench with the compendium.
Please turn off your air conditioner when you go out.
All park guests are welcome to use the BBQs. Please consider others and clean after use. Cleaning utensils are provided.
Each cabin has sufficient parking for a vehicle and small trailer.
Checkout time is strictly 10am. If you wish to stay longer, please check with reception as we may be able to offer a late check out for a fee of $20.

Insects are part of the Tropical North and therefore we advise you to keep all screens closed and avoid leaving any food on the benches.
Small sugar ants are common in the tropics and can be especially prevalent just before heavy rain is expected. Assist us in controlling ants by ensuring that kitchen benches are free of uncovered food and ensure all food containers are well sealed. If you find ants in your cabin please advise Reception.
Most cabins require the key tags to be placed in the key receptor located either next to the door or above the bench. These tags activate power to air conditioners, ceiling fans and TVs.
Please return your key to reception on departure. If the reception isn’t open, please leave your key in the post box outside reception.
We have two laundry facilities. The closest one to the cabins is in the main amenities block. Washing machines and dryers take 4 x $1 coins. Clotheslines are next to the laundry. Bags of washing powder and pegs can be purchased from reception.

Occasionally, things will break or need repair. Should anything in your room or in the grounds require attention, please notify reception and we will endeavour to fix it as soon as possible. For non-urgent repairs please complete the Mr Fixit sheet located in the front of this compendium.
